There a known bug within the updater in SuSE 10.1 - I came across the
situation where the updater in the tray, once I went through the Online
Update Configuration in YAST which is necessary or YOU reports no
updates available (which took absolutely ages to connect to the server
etc) that it reported that one of the updates would invalidate itself
(or something along those lines (apologies for not being more precise).
Seeing as how it was a boxed/bought SuSE 10.1 I mailed them, logged a
Support Issue and got sent the following link.
Basically, choose a different update source and then run YOU twice.

10.1 is lovely, by far the best thing I've used from SuSE. We have a
bunch of Viglen Futura M200 laptops at work and 10.1 makes them sing
like no other distro.
